LONDON, May 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Leading industry experts have given their key insights into the future of sugar and sodium reduction and replacement, in a new industry report compiled by Fi Conferences.

Speaker for the Reducing and Replacing Sugar and Sodium conference, Sam Waterfall, Senior Consultant at the Healthy Marketing Team, asserts that 'the next challenge is for food-tech innovation to deliver consistent experience without compromising favourite flavours'.

Dr. Peter de Kok, Principal Scientist Flavour at NIZO Food Research, suggests that 'reduction targets will become increasingly more challenging. Consumers will become more aware of the topic and become more critical.'

The Reducing and Replacing Sugar and Sodium conference, taking place in Amsterdam on June 12-13, will cover key issues around the growing drive for reformulation, proven new ingredients and technologies, and changing consumer behaviour that is leading to constant growth in low sugar and sodium products.

Delegates will get the exclusive chance to meet with a range of influential industry players in a knowledge-focused forum.  Attendees from world leading brands confirmed include Nestlé Professional, Danone, Waitrose, Hayden's Bakery, Nairns Oatcakes, Podravka, Arla Foods, Mars Chocolate, PepsiCo, Heinz and more.

The conference is conveniently structured as two separately bookable days.  Day one focuses on sugar reduction and replacement and day two on sodium reduction and replacement.  Conference Chair, Cindy Beeren of Leatherhead Food Research, asserts that 'this truly unique conference promises to be a very insightful and productive industry event'. Attendees can choose to participate on either day, or both. Attend the most relevant day for your business to gain in-depth information focused on your needs, or attend both at a discounted rate if you are concerned with both sugar and sodium levels.
